In fac^t the medical authorities are r^her well satisfied with the situation in the city, and believe that the worst has been passed. At the present time there are two seriouB caBoB where pneumonis has been deyelopd, but during the past 24 hours lio fatalities have been reported. Chief Interest today centres on the provincial government order closing the stores till 12.30 non each day commencing Friday until a week from Saturday. . The 'order was received by the city police who were asked to Inform the merchants. The general impression among the merchants was that, so far as Lethbrldge is concerned, the order is not needed,, and is therefore ridiculous. However, some of the merchants when seen by the Herald reported that they -were willing to 4o anything in their power to help combat the epidemic, and if the order were enforced they would not flgbt it, However on the whole the local merchants are inclined to combat the order so far as Lethbrldge goes. "It may be necessary In Calgary and Edmonton, but it is'not necessary here," said one. More complete explanation of the order received by wire from Edmonton by, the Herald at noon indicated that the order could be repealed, in any city by a resolution of the city council. FreBldeiit BaWden of the Retail Merchants' Asikxiiation when informed of tl^lB provision Indicated that the mer-chantB would .likely meet the city council and the local health board to discuss the problem, and .a decision will be arrived at then. Tie meeting will likely be held during the afternoon. The C. P. R. reportu ,that they still have about 140 men off work on this division on account of the'flu. Coaiburst mining camp is still in a bad way, but at Commerce there are only about 15 men of the mining camp not working, At No. 3 and No. 6 there does hot appear to be any great increase. The post office staff has only two off work today, ^t the worst they had only six off duty. The work of the office Is somewhat behind as a result' but Acting Postmaster Sargent states today that they are catChinjg up. The mask order Is catislhg quite a commotion.. .This .9'oraing three a^' j peared before Magistrate Irwiii in tlie A. P. P. court and wier^ lined fl and i costs for not Having their iaasks on.! A couple of these cases occurred in j the rotunda of the Alexandra Hotel.' Today Chief Hardy was busy serving i summons on 15 more who will appear tomorrow. NO MS, NO VOTE, R'S IDEA Ohiy Sixty-Six Persons Applied To Be Added to the Votcns' List If the numbter of appliofttioiia , by tenants for the right to vote at the December municipal and school elections is to be-taken as any criterion of the;:interest of thcf people of Lethbrldge' in matters municipal, that interest is very;small indeed, , For out ofS,|n ealjnialea population Of 800 to lOdb tenants, only Gfi made an effort to be added to the voters' list. This came to light on Wednesday afternoon when the court of revision Of the voters' list was iield in the city council chambers. The list submitted by City Clerk Duff contained a total of 74 names, of whom eight n'ore properly owners whose names had not been placed on the voters' list, and the remaining 86 were tenants, who are required to, make application annually to be placed on the Hat, Of the 74 names ten were the names of women wI^o desire to exercise their municipal franchise. "It is my opinion" .said Mayor Hardle, � "that every man and woman in the city over 21 years of age should have a vote on municipal matterB, with the exception of money bylaws. But I would make OAe exception: the taxen on the property on which either tenant or owner desires the vote must be paid for the current year. No taxes, no vote. This might appear to work a hardship on the tenant, but Ihere is no reason why the tenant shoud not be allowed to pay his rent In to the city until the taxes on the property he is leasing have been paid, and then, liis right to vote would be safe. It would be up to the tenant each year to see to it that the taxes are paid If ho wants to exercise his franchise," This matter came up during a dls-cusflion of the charter, oue clause of which requires that the t.ixes on prop-1 erty be paid. The city lias never exercised this ^clause, and it was decided that It woiiid not be enforced this year. But it Is au'te likely that the city will ask for amendments to the municipal franchise clauses making the vote privilege more liberal provided payment of taxes is made. In fact payment of taxes on any piece of property may become the only vote qualification it Mayor Hardie has^his way. ' The list of 74 names was gone oTer by the members of the court of revision, and as there was no reason for not accepting any of them all were placed on the list. Wm. Skead, a resident of Winnipeg since 1878, is dead. FOR THE SOLDIER BOYS WFRIINCE SOMETHING TO SMOKE? CALL ON US AND LET US SHOW YOU THE IDEAL GIFTS FOR THE FRONT.

BrjficjMfeifaKviaitokVdi;'^ v^-A-t' - Before this s is in type Germany may haye accepted the Allies' terms of armistice. But, that would not mean that thk Victory Loan would no* be needed. Canada will still neied the. Victory Loan when fighting ceases, just as she has needed the money to carry on the war. After fighting ceases it will cost hundreds of millions of dollars to maintain Canada s soldiers until they can be demobilized. Canada may have to keep her quota of nrten in occupied enemy territory. Canada will have to transport her army home. For some time to come Canada must continue to finance the supply of foodstuffs for Britain and her Allies on credit. War or nb war, Canada must continue to finance her ship* building program to replace lost tonnage and to establish and maintain her proper place in the s^a-carrying comnierce of the world. All this will have to be financed through the Victbry Loan. 1918. Whether or not Germany accepts the Allies' terms, the Victory Loan, 1918, must be subscribed and over-subscribed Nothing less than this will enable Canada to complete her war effort and to maintain her agricultural and industirial prosperity.
